Random Acts of Shifeness - The Kids Are Alright

  • Kyle got his cast for his fractured wrist and he chose green. He was excited that it didn't cover up his hand to let him help Mrs. Shife with the planting of the new flowers. 

  • Hayden got herself some new shoes, Chuck Taylors.

  • However, she has been calling them her Chuck Norris shoes.
    I asked hew why she thought her shoes were named after Chuck Norris and she told me that he was the first person to walk on the moon.
    Sounds like good logic to me.
    I knew Chuck Norris had grown to epic proportions because of all of the memes out there but I was unaware of his moon adventure.
    It was a moment where you just had to laugh at an 8-year-old's imagination.


  • You may have heard the news that Nicolas Cage is going to play Joe Exotic in an upcoming TV show. For the love of fat bassets, I hope they call it: "UnCAGEed."
  • My challenge for May is to try and play something on the guitar. 
  • Happy Mother's Day to all you fabulous ladies out there. Keep fighting the good fight. 
  • And, finally, my favorite meme of the week:


I will persevere. I will keep moving forward. I will be the stream.

  1. Kyle's cast is cool!
    Hayden's shoes...who knew?
    xoxo :-)

  2. Fashion conscious Casts and Chuck Norris Shoes... I Love it! And Chuck having a Moon Adventure, why not, the Memes about him are just as entertaining as a covert Moon Walk kept under wraps.

  3. The green cast is great! Good color choice. I love the imagination that children have, isn't it wonderful! I'm sure Chuck Norris was on the moon with Michael Jackson doing the moon walk and wearing those very same shoes!

  4. Nice color on the cast! I had no idea about Chuck....might have to go get some of those shoes. :-) hahaha

  5. Aw, sorry for the fracture, but he looks ok and cool! Hope he heals well. I had a giant black boot on for 8 weeks, and didn't like it.
    CN on the moon, funny!!

  6. tell Kyle his cast is way cool..wish I could sign it..and Hayden..I'm so jealous of your tenny runners...they rock..

  7. This is mostly over my head this week. I did have two brothers; one broke his arm, one his wrist. My mom drove them to school until they recovered. I never broke anything and never got any rides.
    Best wishes Kyle, especially on getting rides.

  8. That meme cracked me up.

    It's not Mother's Day here in the UK.

    Cool shoes and cast!

  9. Love the cast, doesn't look like it will impede him much this summer. Hayden's logic, lol.

  10. Wishing Kyle speedy healing and Hayden all the powers of Chuck Norris :)

    Happy Mother's Day to Mrs. S!

  11. I had no idea you could get color casts! And it's great he's got mobility in his hand. BTW gardening is super relaxing. I've decided to take on a tiny space and plant some bulbs. It's worked wonders on my quarantine-stressed mind.
    Love the Chucks! But Norris? LOL
    Please tell Mrs. Shife I hope she had a great Mother's Day!


  12. Kyle looks better now...and with his "big" smile as usual....great boy.

  13. I could totally believe that Chuck Norris was the first man on the moon. Hope Kyle gets better soon and glad he's up for gardening. That's the best therapy.

  14. Nice cast--better than white! He looks like he's doing well.
